Growth miracle

110 seconds and the "Pique Dame" stage is set

Parts weighing hundreds of kilograms, boxes, hoists, lifting platforms - and a lot of manual work. For a week, the stage technicians at the Festspielhaus, together with the team led by set designer Christian Fenouillat, stomped the stage construction for "Queen of Spades" out of the black plank floor. The time-lapse video gives an impression of the stage worlds that were moved for this. From April 9, when the curtain rises on the premiere, life will be in full swing here.
